"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


NPM: Poem in Your Pocket Day!

Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!!

Today is the day to go around with an awesome poem in your pocket and share it with EVERYONE!!  This is a fun way to participate in National Poetry Month, even if you don't usually read poetry.  The poem can be anything from a nursery rhyme to your favorite rap song.  

What I do is leave copies of my poem of choice around places I visit on PIYP Day.  I posted one up in my office at work, and look what happened:
Mine's top right
I'm so excited other people added poems!  I didn't even really make an announcement about it, just quietly added my choice.  This shows that a love of poetry is alive and well in my workplace, which could not make me happier!!  

Besides PIYP Day, there are a ton of ways to celebrate, but you can still get a poem for your pocket!  Check out Poets.org's page for different ways to celebrate today, and the rest of National Poetry Month!
